John Kobylt and Ken Chiampou have been hosts of “the John and Ken Show” for 35 years. They are the longest running team in talk-radio history, both in Los Angeles and nationally.

Debuting in January 1988 on WOND-AM in Atlantic City, John and Ken have hosted top-rated shows over five decades, including the last 30 years at KFI in Los Angeles.

They are known for pioneering on-site coverage of major news stories, including the OJ Simpson, Scott Peterson and Michael Jackson trials and attracting thousands of people to live shows centered around many public issues. The “John and Ken Show” also was a major force in bringing down two sitting Governors in New Jersey and California.

Well into the 2010s, John and Ken did riveting coverage of the homeless crisis with live shows from Skid Row in Los Angeles, and the Santa Ana riverbed encampment. They also achieved some of their highest ratings covering the pandemic and lockdowns in California.

Known for their fierce independence and refusal to be aligned with any political party, “The John and Ken Show” occupies a unique place in talk radio history.
